Plot – Spoilers:
A human jellyfish from the ’60s. This is pure trash cinema with gloriously bad effects and all the enjoyable shit that usually accompanies it.
A bullied disfigured man seeks vengeance against the world. There’s also the trope of that one sympathetic woman in his life. His makeup is terrible though – it’s like some personality-dullening cream that wasn’t even properly applied, with portions of his forehead escaping the makeup-artist’s attention.
So there’s this island where a biologist is doing something, while wearing embarrassing shorts. He’s assisted by some dude and the jellyfish guy. Jellyfish lusts after the biologist’s daughter who arrives with her friends. Another obnoxious crowd whom the writer of this trash decided to refer to as ‘young people’ also turns up. Some of them look really old for a bunch of grad students. But that’s relatively a trifling matter. As soon as these young people arrive, they start dancing. Because whenever young people go anywhere, they start dancing. Unfortunately the lot die too soon, and mostly en masse.
Apart from the pleasures of lolling around in garbage, Sting of Death is educational, at least personally. Now I know where Manowar possibly got their name from.
